  1. Thanks for the heads up, just ordered the XS swage. That’s much more palatable than the one from Brownell’s.
  2. Does anyone know of a NJ Gunsmith (central/south jersey) that can remove the mag tube detents using Brownell's dent raiser or something similar? I don't want to drill or grind them out and I don't want to buy an $85 tool I'm only going to need once for 10 minutes. Or, does anyone have one they're willing to rent to me? Also, I'm not looking to pound a socket down into the tube to remove the detents either. I know that's an option but not one I'm willing to utilize.
  3. Goop post and a perfect example of why guns should not be bought on impulse. It pays to do research and know what you're getting into. Dare I say... You would have been far better off buying a standard 870P with factory Police wood stocks. (model #'s 24901/24903) You could have easily sold the Police stock set for far more than the cost of the Magpul set, putting money IN your pocket. It's not just the springs on an 870P that make it better than an Express/Tactical. The receivers are far better in terms of machining, the finish is superior and the action is overall better. Put them side by side and there's a night and day difference. Especially with what Remington is putting out nowadays. By the time you add up all that money in parts and shipping, then time installing it, you would have been better off with a 870P form the start.
  4. I just had Cold Bore chop a 17 for me, as well as a bunch of other work and it came out great!!! I bought the 17 with the intention of chopping it to accept 15 mags. I could care less about the resale value personally as I have no intentions of selling it, it's my main defense platform. Once my next GSSF coupon arrives, I'll be adding another and setting it up the exact same way. What I had done - - Grip Chop 17-19 - Partial Grip Reduction - 360* Tactical Texture - Texture Forward Frame Flats - Recess Mag Catch - Remove Finger Grooves - Undercut Trigger Guard Removing the finger groves may have ben the best thing I could have done besides the grip chop. My fingers just didn't line up with them and for me... they're unnecessary. Overall the pistol is far better than it was originally. The difference is night and day. Lane at Cold Bore is a great guy to do bussiness with too. This is the second pistol I've had Lane do and both have been above my expectations.
  5. As stated in the third sentence of my third post to this thread (the very last post on the first page) - "I was able to sell a few HK's, buy Glocks and pocket money for other things I needed right now."
  6. Now GLOCK is #1 in your eyes but in your previous post you clearly stated that they were "inferior" to HK. "So, H&K's are better yet you sold all yours and bought an inferior gun?" So, which is it Ray? All I'm simply stating is this... HK is the finest weapons maker in the world overall. Period. Disagree? Name one company ahead of them. It's most certainly not Sig because at the moment they have their heads up their asses.
  7. I haven't sold ALL my HK's, I still have many. (P7's, P9's, a USC.) Just the HK polymer pistols I had went. I was able to sell a few HK's, buy Glocks and pocket money for other things I needed right now. That's life. Now, GLOCK makes great pistols but that's ALL they make. Inferior... yeah right! Their pistols will accomplish the same thing HK pistols will but for a lot less. COOL! I need that right now. However, their still isn't a company that builds the quality assault weapons HK does, not one. There isn't another company that test their weapons as thoroughly as HK does, not one. They surely don't expand their catalog with tawdry, unreliable pistols for the sake of picking up a few customers like Sig is doing right now. They seriously don't compromise, they over built the **** out of their guns and it shows. Juts like everything in life there will always be one, single, entity at the top of their prospective fields. HK is undoubtedly at the top of the firearms game overall. No one is on their level. Please... tell me one other company that can even come close to HK's weapons overall, civilian or Military/LEO. What we're limited to in NJ sucks but that's NJ.
  8. I agree their prices are high but none in the firearms game can hold a candle to HK. NO ONE! There isn't another company around today that makes the scope of firearms that HK does. Maybe FNH, maybe. (Mind you this is coming from a GLOCK shooter.) I've gotten rid of all my "plastic" HK's and moved over to Glock because of 1. Price 2. Simplicity 3. I shoot them better and 4. Parts/Accessories just are everywhere. That being said I still think HK is so far out in front in terms of assault weapons it's almost unfair. I'm not a hatter of any one gun maker but it is what it is.
  9. Heckler & Koch. Personally I think Sig has become the laughing stock of pistols manufacturers with all their current, various rainbow guns. Half the pistols they make are a joke, not functionality wise, just purley on looks. I'd buy one of their older German made guns in a heartbeat but the **** they make today, NO WAY!
  10. I've heard so many people say this and it's never made any sense to me. How is it any different form using the mag release under stress? If you can't hit the slide release under stress, I'd hate to see what happens when your gun runs dry and it's ready for a reload in the heat of the moment. I always have and always will use the slide lock/release, whichever you'd like to call it. But... to each his own.
  11. In the grand scheme of things (defensive ammo) Hornady CD isn't ****. Who uses it besides civilians? No one. As for "far better" defensive loads... I would say there are none better and more proven then Win Ranger T Series or Fed HST's. Hornady CD can't even come close to either of those loadings and really, aren't even in the same arena.
  12. This is how I feel... If it's for shooting in defense, HP all the way. If it's for practice, regular ball FMJ is all you need. I don't know about Hornady C.D. ammo though. There are far better, more proven products to buy.
  13. I've thought about it a lot and I probably never will re-laod ammo. I don't want to invest the time to learn how to do it properly. I don't have the time to learn or to actually re-load the ammo itself. I also don't want to run out and buy a bunch of equipment and components. I've looked into the cost saving aspect of it and when I factor in my time, it just doesn't make sense for me. It's cheaper and a hell of a lot easier to just buy factory loaded ammo I can rely on.
  14. Luis, I called a few more places today for scrap prices and there is no way I'll get $3+ a lb. The one shop I called yesterday wasn't very clear with the information he gave me so I was totally wrong. Sorry. I'm still on the fence about what to do with it all. I may just hang on to it and shoot the 2500rds of CCI Blazer Brass I currently have to add to it. Or maybe I'll just wait to fill up a 5 gallon bucket, then figure out what to do with it. I don't know...
